If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
